Starts off with 3 x table tops out in the open, going into the bush it gets bermy, then a rock garden into some bumpy corners before coming out of the bush again with a large step down into 3 x table tops again. Back into the forest with some small to medium jumps before popping out onto the big berms (which is not part of Mexican Border)

The alternative (new line) is still very loose and needs proper rain to bed in.
